The Basement Christmas Show 2018

Irreverent and subversive, The Basement Theatre Christmas Show has evolved from a low-key fundraiser to one of Auckland’s must-do staples, described by New Zealand Herald as “as much of an Auckland holiday season staple as Franklin Rd Lights and the Santa Parade”. 

This year is Basement's tenth annual Christmas 'Do, and champagne is popping with a show written by top class comedians Rose Matafeo and Alice Snedden.

As the theatre’s only fundraiser, all profits from the Christmas show go into maintenance for the venue and development programmes for artists.

The year is 1997 and Go Away Travel agency are preparing for their end of year Christmas party. Desks have been decorated, glasses are filled to the brim with middle shelf Chardonnay and the team are ready to let loose.

Linda Harwood - the agency’s charismatic yet inept leader - is keen to show her employees a good time. However, she is harbouring a secret that may dampen the evening’s festivities. What will this ill-timed Yuletide revelation do to a drunken party of co-workers who barely like each other when they’re sober?
